Some description

FBI trainee Clarice Starling has to track down notorious serial killer Buffalo Bill before he claims another innocent victim. Time’s running out, and the brilliant cannibal psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter may hold the truth—if Clarice plays his dangerous game of quid pro quo. A raunchy spoof of the 1991 Oscar-winning film, Silence! The Musical—which shattered NYC Fringe Festival box office records and ran for more than 500 performances Off-Broadway—features gleefully vulgar songs, non-stop zingers, and a singing chorus of tap-dancing lambs.

2ndStage is Studio’s playground for emerging artists, offering innovative and thrillingly eclectic programming with shorter rehearsal periods and smaller budgets than our other productions, with a spirit of exuberance and experiment.


These little lambs will make you laugh and smile, and then laugh some more.

Jaw-droppingly gorgeous…infectious energy…slays the audience!


COMEDIC INSANITY! AN ABSURDLY BRILLIANT PIECE OF THEATRE! There is not one member of the ten-person cast who isn’t perfect for their role.

Seamless direction from Alan Paul.  It’s offensive, it’s rude. You won’t be disappointed.
